Ups and Downs – aka – A Beautiful Boy, My Lovely Man, and One Lucky Lady


I have seen light at the end of the tunnel through my anxiety issues. Talking to a doctor and getting on medication have me feeling on a more even keel. I even managed getting to the YMCA two days in a row last week.

Then I fell ill with some sort of stomach bug the night after my second trip. In an ironic twist, my husband thinks I picked up something at the gym since we ate pretty much the same exact foods at home all week and he stayed healthy while I turned inside out.

It took me five days recovering before I felt up to proper exercise. A little apprehensive, I returned to the gym yesterday. And I got my payoff, dirty old lady style.

While on one of the resistance training machines, I saw the most beautiful boy walk past. He had exquisite lean muscle tone, impossible to miss since he wore a sliced up excuse for a shirt that gave a gorgeous view of his bared arms and lats. And he worked that thick head of shoulder length dark hair, flipping those coiled locks after each rest between weight lifting sets.

Since my lovely spouse is so confident and tolerant of my adolescent sensibilities, I admitted my lechery upon returning home. He laughed when I spoke of changing my routine to keep the guy within casual viewing range. Back in the nineties, my silly guy debated with me over who was hotter from the “Lord of the Rings” trilogy, Legolas or Aragorn. Over time, I came to agree with him that it’s the latter. ~grin~ He called Legolas a ‘greasy elf’.

  1. Nothing better than going to the gym and enjoying the view. I've done that many times. Good for you and even better that you can share that experience with hubby.

    Sorry you were sick for so long. Glad you're okay now.

    Have a fabulous day and weekend. See you next week. ♥

  2. That's the whole reason to go to a gym, isn't it?

  3. I am glad you are feeling better. Your hubby sounds sweet. I have not read The Lord of The Rings, but Viggo Mortenson is cute, I liked him in A Walk on the Moon, one of my favorite films.

    1. Thank you for the kind words. And I'll have to check out the movie. I've not heard of it for some reason.

  4. You've had some rough times lately. I hope you feel better and Aragorn is decidedly more rugged and mainly than the flimsy elf boy, no matter how good he was with a boy and arrow.

  5. Gyms are good not just for the body, but for the mind too, aren't they?! :-)

  6. You are not right...haha...no I have not read that. Pradeep Nair above says that a gym is good for other things and not just the body, GERMS also. Keep that in mind my OCD friend! haha. Seems that the bug you had has been going around. I was sick a week ago Tuesday, thought it was a bug but thinking since it has not let up much that it is my tummy issues that go with fibro I am dealing with. Stress, food and all that emotional issues of life will mess with IBS. Gotta love life, gotta love our bodies. Glad you are feeling better, hope you remain that way.
